I am working on two afghans but this one I started this afghan on Easter weekend cause I leave my other one at work and had nothing to do when I was travling that weekend, the one panel is just about done and I have four left to do.

It really is not as complicated as it looks. My daughter has already requested one in blue and a friend of mine asked for one in orange, I guess I will be making a few more of them before the end of the year.

Thanks everyone for all the lovely compliments on the afghan. I hope to have some pics up soon of one of the smaller panels that I have started for this afghan.

For those of you looking for the pattern. I found the stitch in a book called Knitting Counterpanes at my local library. Although Iam not sure how to go about joining those strips together, or if it would be easier to knit it as one big afghan.

You would just sew the panels together. It would be a lot heavier if you did it all in one piece, besides the are two panels that are smaller that go in between and they are done in the cable stitch.

Now that would make more sense. I was trying to picture what it would look like, I will have to play around with it and see about the cable strips. I want to use up some red heart that I have here, so it will work out well. Iam going to keep an eye for the booklet too.

The cable panel looks good with the other panel and I am looking forward to when it is done and I am able to put it all together. Well I purchased it at Zellers in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada, but you should be able to pick it up anywhere i am guessing
